    HaHA, I think I recognize that white bike, could it be that Schiavone needs a nice new headset? Hey man while you're at it, could you please do something for those lousy feeling brakes??:D

    "We normally do not work in gloves, but this rider wanted NOTHING to touch his just buffed rim braking surface. The rim surface looks scarred, and it is scarred. This provides braking for his trials riding.
    It is now 23:00 hours, that is enough for today. "


    don't you wear rubber gloves after you grind your rims?

    "The new headset has a deep insersion, and the bike was not cut for this"

    That's because I cut it for a regular headset.

    goodhue? hawaii?

    I've no idea...

    and as for that chump with the dented downtube, I bet he's just the sort of stuck up national representative that thinks he's hot shit to trials because he wears a "team usa" shirt once a year and gets good deals on whatever frame he feels like today, but not with anything RESEMBLING loyalty...sheesh...

    jks - which team usa trials members will I be seeing on saturday?

    no, but trials riders, unlike the rest of the US world champs team, don't have big sponsorship contracts and a mechanic each already.

    Well your hands have grease and such on them so it might effect his grinding.

    that sites pretty cool, lots of informative stuff for those of us not skilled enough to make it to a world round.


    I like how they used a pic of tony f.'s shin for describing trials "punctures"

    puncture wounds... i liked that. i dont know- seems to me that most of my many shinies have come as disgusting scraps of flesh removal. i picture punctures as like stepping on a nail.. i havent had too many of those from pedals. there is always an upward or downward motion after the initial puncture. yes i am a stupid dork. im also stuck up.

    I usually get a puncture followed by a upward or downwards scrape with said puncture still in my shin. This results in a tear, not a muscle tear, shin tear.

    Also I fall on my ass alot. good thing I got ghetto [email protected]!
